It was alleged that our Client along with another individual were going to make a drug deal with the Victim. In exchange for a large amount of money, our Client was going to provide the Victim with a large amount of narcotics. Instead of making good on the deal, the Victim claimed that our Client pistol whipped him unconscious. Then our Client and another individual dragged, robbed and kidnapped the Victim in a van, and drove the Victim to a remote location on the West Side of Chicago. Once there, our Client helped drag the Victim out of the van, and the other individual shot the Victim in the head at point blank range. The Victim lived, and identified both our Client and the other individual to police as the perpetrators of this crime. The Prosecution had offered our Client a deal of 31 years in prison in exchange for a plea of guilty. We rejected that offer and took our Client's case to trial. THE VERDICT WAS NOT GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES!
Our Client was charged with Felony Manufacturing and Delivery of a Controlled Substance. Police claim to have witnessed our Client engage in a narcotics transaction with another individual. It was alleged that our Client was given money and in exchange, he gave narcotics to his co-defendant. After witnessing the alleged narcotics transactions, officers arrested our Client.

Our Client was charged with 2 connected Felony cases. One case of Felony Forgery for allegedly possessing counterfeit money and one case of Felony Theft for using counterfeit money to buy a car. Our Client was facing up to 5 years in prison for these cases. Although the cases went beyond the Preliminary Hearing Stages, we were able to negotiate a successful outcome. The prosecution agreed to a sentence of "Second Chance Probation," if our Client agreed to pay the Victim of the Theft case "real" money to replace the counterfeit money. If our Client pays the restitution and successfully completes the probation, these cases will be dismissed, will not result in felony convictions and will be immediately eligible for expungement after dismissal.
